current state. >> a lot of what was being proposed between the half a trillion of medicare cuts, the cuts potentially for veterans and looking at the higher taxes, almost a one size fits all program, is not good for massachusetts. >> reporter: so in a sense after more than half a year of single minded focus on health care reform, the democrats now find themselves back at scare one practically, though they say they're still committed to passing something this year. >> nancy cordes on capitol hill. thank you very much. >>> also in washington this morning is howard dean, former chairman of the democratic national committee. dr. dean, how are you this morning? >> i'm very well, thank you. >> is health care dead? >> i don't think so. i think the american people want health care reform. what they didn't want was something that was written by the insurance industries. and this is a very washington-centered proposal that finally came over to the house. so i think they'll try again, put something in there that the american people want. the american people really do want us to do something about th

the entitlement programs, medicare, medicaid and also government spending, is how little of the federal budget it covers. i thought there was one paragraph in the "new york times" sorry of this this morning that really kind of summed it up. it says the payoff in budget savings would be small relative to the deficit. the estimated $250 billion in savings. $250 billion. over ten years would be less than 3% of the roughly $9 trillion -- $9 trillion -- in new debt that will accrue over the next ten years nap shows you just how massive these sums are that we're talking about. i think it's probably good politics for the president to announce this, that he's going to put this freeze in. whether he can get it passed in an election year when all of these people that are running for re-election in the congress are out there with their political survival at stake i think is another matter. he may get a freeze in some of these programs, i think it's going to be very difficult for him to get a freeze in all of them that he's talking about. >> because voters are paying attention and the economy is clearly t

with the long term debt before everybody talks about you have to do something about social security and medicare. and i was in the deal last time with bb dole 20 some years ago where we settled for 30 years social security. we all worked together. and it was really disappointing that seven of the republican co-sponsors of that proposal yesterday voted against it. and then when the president talked about the kind of things we have to do to take responsibility for what we did to add to the debt and what they did to add to the debt previously, there didn't seem to be much of a reaction. but this is a little bit of theater and i'm hoping -- i know there's a core of republican senators who want to work on this with us. >> mr. vice president, thank you for the time this morning. do appreciate it. >> thanks, harry. >>> now here's maggie. >>> let's hear from the other side, republican senator john mccain joins us from capitol hill. good morning, senator mccain. >> good morning, maggie. >> you just heard vice president biden echo what president obama said last night. now nat democrat nos longer have the
